Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been talking tough since the November elections. After the GOP won big in November, he pronounced his No. 1 political aim: to make President Obama a one-term president. In December, he showed his political acumen once again -- forcing the Democrats to extend the Bush tax cuts and to scrap an omnibus bill. He promises to continue to be a force in 2011. Melissa Block talks with McConnell about the GOP agenda in the weeks ahead, including the repeal of the health care law and reductions in federal spending.
